Benefit a Huge Success!

Tony Kushner, Terrence McNally, Gloria Naylor, Grace Paley, and Stephen Sondheim read from their work before a packed audience at CLAGS’s annual benefit on October 15th in the Graduate School Auditorium. Danitra Vance emceed the evening which raised over $20,000 to further lesbian and gay studies. A photography exhibit of lesbian and gay life by Gail S. Goodman was on display during the reception that followed the readings. Esther Katz, CLAGS Board president, expressed the feelings of many of us when she said, ” We were thrilled to have such a star-studded group of readers. The money we’ve raised will go a long way toward helping us fund our free public forums, various fellowships, and our monthly scholarly colloquia.”
